My best cities to live in would include at least 5 not on the poll
1) Houston (tons to do, never bored, great people)
2) Boston (same as Houston positives I listed but more $)
3) NYC everything is good but cost of living
4) Rochester NY (Igrew up there, all that is missing for it to be perfect is a better economy and lower taxes)
5) Chicago (see NYC positives)
6) San Francisco ( only negatives are cost and overly arrogant liberals)
7) Philly (loved it every time I have been there, fun city)
8) San Antonio ( lots of my good friends from college are from there, great city)
9) Portland ( only negatives are lots of rain and aggressive panhandlers)
10) Pittsburgh (really underrated and entertaining city, kickstart the economy and it would be perfect)
For me the most important things in a perfect city are entertainment, parks, culture and down to earth, friendly people!

Cleveland!? Cleveland is great, lol what about St. Paul being on there.

Cleveland has so much history, a very diverse economy and diverse population. A national park just minutes from downtown. An attractive downtown, and beautiful suburbs. Great lakefront beaches, and one of America's most livable cities.

i mean SLC? Omaha? St. Paul? Reaaaally now St. Paul gets its own listing but no Boston? Dumb question to begin with, but a million times dumber due to lack of certain options.

SF, Boston, Chicago, St. Louis, and Chattanooga,,, them be the best. Where there is a good healthy mix of great nightlife, culture, food, history, entertainment, etc that a city offers, coupled with wonderful hills, streams, etc. of nearby wilderness areas.
